Stop. Sit. Breathe.


I think today was the busiest day of my life. Truly. It went kind of like this:
7:55am - driving Munch to doc, 30 minutes away
9:00am - driving Munch home, bare legs, sans pants. Pants are soaking wet and crumpled up on my floorboard. It was 34* outside this morning.
9:20am - leave Munch with sitter, drive to get poster frame at JoAnn's
9:40am - searching JoAnn's for down pillow inserts. Misson failed. 
10:10am - buying a cowboy hat at Leddy's {they carry SF and are AMAZE} 
10:35 - drive down the street to investigate down pillow insert mission. They have some, but seem pricey. I call a store across town, find a place offering them for 1/4 of the price, and decide it's worth saving the money even with such a long drive.
11:00 - at new store, scooping up 12 pillow inserts for photo shoot Monday, shove in car with massive poster frame, cowboy hat in a box, and dry cleaning still residing in trunk from last week
11:20 - arrive at UPS drop off to mail 5000 tags to India
11:30 - leave UPS to pick up Squish from school
11:35 - arrive at school and have a blissful 10 minutes in my car catching up with an old friend {Melissa, who the fab Melissa dress was designed and named for fyi}
11:45 - pick up Squish, go home to squeeze the life out of Munch and Snooze since I hadn't seen them all morning, remembered I forgot to get a mattress for Munch's new big girl bed, grab Squish, and get back in the car
11:50 - painter stops us as we leave. Talk to painter for 15 minutes. 
12:05 - Head to get mattress
12:20 - At mattress store where Squish proceeds to jump on every.single.mattress with his very.dirty.shoes on but I turn a blind eye so I can pick one out and get home and SIT AND EAT BECAUSE I AM HUNGRY
12:50 - leave mattress store, arranged delivery for 5 hours later, and have to build her bed in the meantime #ha
1:05 - get home and realize I also have to build a bookshelf. 
1:05.10 - decide eating is most important
1:05.20 - remember dogs need to go out
1:20 - finally sitting and eating and watching Star Wars with Squish, who has dropped his nap, which I have mixed feelings about
1:50 - start building bookshelf
2:30 - no. not building bookshelf. break to sit and escape and blog. stop. sit. and breathe.
3:05 - finish checking some emails and wrapping up posts for today. have to have all three in car and ready for swim lessons {ISR - if you haven't looked into it - do so stat} in 40 minutes. I think we are supposed to have date night tonight - which in all likelihood will be at Central Market so we can multitask and grocery shop at the same time. #romance 

Going to go get suits and towels ready for swim. 
Running 50K on Sunday.
Photo shoot on Monday morning. 
Pray I can wear heels for it. Maybe just pray my feet don't fall off on Sunday actually.

  1. Hi and congrats on your amazing busy day achievements! So incredible ... Even if I am not a fan of dirty shoes on a clean mattress (probably European parenting is different) you managed more than I would and especially I wouldn't run a marathon so good luck!! Hugs z
